High end Turntable cable, Ultra low capacitance silk covered litz copper
ultra low capacitance turntable cable
This is the latest version of our ultra low capacitance turntable cable.
These are fitted with locking RCA plugs – this means you can plug them in and remove them easily but when in place you can twist the body to lock them tightly in place to give the best connection.
What material is the wire made of and why?
Our wire is made from OFC Litz copper. Each core is made up of 84 individually insulated strands of 0.071mm diameter copper. They are held together by natural silk fibres and covered with an oversized nylon outer cover to give a decent air gap between cores.
Why OFC copper rather than OCC or Silver.
What is the advantage of Litz vs stranded copper in terms of skin effect?
With a standard stranded copper wire, as charge can move from one strand to another, they act as one thick solid conductor.
What is the capacitance and impedance of your cable? How does it affect things?
Our cables have some of the lowest capacitance of any that we have tested. This was one of the main goals we had when designing it, as capacitance is most likely to give an audible effect. Typically, one of our cables will have around 20pF – 40 pF for a 2m cable, depending on the connectors used. As a comparison, a standard HD600 cable has a capacitance of 600pF.
How does your cable sound?
As mentioned above, our cables are designed to keep the signal as pure as possible with a perfectly flat response. We believe you should not use a cable as “tone control”, and the sound is as good as it is going to get as it leaves the amp – the cable’s job is to get the signal to the headphones without adding or removing anything from the sound.
What are the ergonomics like?
Ergonomics are almost as important as the electrical performance – you could have a great sounding cable, but if it is stiff or heavy, it can be distracting and spoil your listening experience.
What sort of warranty do you offer and what If I change my setup in the future?
We offer a 2 year warranty on all of our cables, so if you get any problems please message us! We can repair or replace it for you for free any time in the first 2 years.
We are keen for our cables to stay in use for as long as possible to help prevent waste and save the environment. If your cable breaks outside the warranty period, we offer cost price repairs. If you should buy a different amplifier or headphones in the future, you can send the cable back to us to be altered or adapted for a reasonable price.
